Simply put, Pierre Hardy has one of the top Spring 2012 collections. The two major standouts are the teal & tan striped platform sandal & the muti-colored canvas wedge (available on pre-order at LuisaViaRoma). This wedge was also featured on my Top 10 list. Leighton Meester, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman & Katie Holmes are all fans of his shoes and I know he will pick up even more red carpet love this spring.
Update: ***Check out the new Christian Louboutin Fall 2012 Collection***
Here are the new styles and names released from the much anticipated Christian Louboutin Spring 2012 collection:
I will be updating this list as styles are released and as always tell you when they become available online. The PVC pumps are very interesting and I would love to have the Bis Un Bout in black suede. Pay close attention to Louboutin’s US online store – new styles are being released almost daily.
Where to shop for current season styles: Christian Louboutin’s US boutique (also has e-boutiques available for tons of countries!), Bergdorf Goodman, Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus & Barneys.

Every season on Manolo’s web site there is a brief write up explaining the inspiration behind the collection. For Blahnik’s Fall 2011 collection some influences came from Tolstoy & Dali, to classic Hollywood beauties and also from architectural designs like the Moorish mosaics. Last season the standout piece was the Anastasia, this season, the Muna zig zag pump, Permin pump & the black and pink Imbratahi striped bootie catch my eye.
I recently suggested that Zooey Deschanel should have worn the Nipotta : )
